Did you come from an E86?

I bought my 2006 3.0Si in 2015, sight unseen (except for pictures.) It's been a pretty good 2 1/2 season car but it has the M-sport suspension and ride is pretty harsh (on non-run flat summer tires) on all but perfectly smooth roads. And there are few perfectly smooth roads in the snowy midwest.

I'm wondering if an E89 w/o the sport suspension would be significantly better. Looking for comments from anyone who has lived with an E86 and an E89 and/or M-sport vs regular suspension. At this point in my life, a good ride is more important than handling. Truth be told, I'm also considering a 2-series convertible as a possible replacement.
